    That's awesome your DH gets that much! I usually don't pay for things with cash, I just use my debit card, but when I do use cash I just throw all my change in a piggie bank (it's a piggie!) my Mom gave me. I don't know how long I've been saving this change. Maybe since December?

    I just ordered some Mark eyeshadows!! I really like their lip glosses too. The clothes and everything are so cute. Their perfume is really nice too!

    Yay for May babies!!! :hug: You and your DH are right after me, 1, 2, 3!!

    Woohoo!! :dance3:

    I'm happy you're joining the Diva trip!!! Wooo some more!! :banana:

    My battery on my camera is charging, so I found a picture online of my bags.

    Isn't it cute? The duffle bag isn't too big. Not big enough to carry ALL my stuff in, but it will work. The other bag I already have filled with snacks.

    Oooh - love those bags! I particularly love the "generous outside pockets" shown in the ad! That's what I look for - generous pockets!!

    I am still contemplating the Divas trip - especially if you and DizNee Luver go! I know Jasmine and Kerri will have to wait a little longer before plans can be made (which is my issue too - too far in advance), but with any luck, the planets will align and we will ALL be able to go at the same time!:yay: Michele (Kaoden39)....any chance of you making an appearance on the Divas trip, or are you already signed up and I am unaware?

    Those bags are so absolutely adorable!! Would love to know where you got them too. Man, this board is costing me so much money, hahahaha. I have no impulse control, that's what it is.

    I got them from Avon! They had them available on Avon.com, but I don't see them anymore! They have another cute Mickey green ones available now!

    I'm trying real hard too. It's hard to say because it is so far in advance. But I hope we can both make it!!

    The other bag (not the duffel) is really big. I already stuffed it full of snacks and there is still room. It has a bunch of zippers and pockets inside it too! I'm going to start packing in the duffel bag and see how much fits in it.

    Go go!! But I know what you mean, it is too far in advance, that's why it's hard for me so say what exact days I'm going to go..

    I don't know if Michele is going. I haven't see her on the Ladies Only thread!

    Aren't they cute?! I got them from Avon!! I know they have some other Mickey bags. They're a green color with stripes. Super cute.

    I know what you mean! This board has forced me (haha!) to buy a Baggallini, Crocs, uhhh. And a bunch of other stuff! ;)

    I lone online shopping too. I actually buy more things online than I do in an actual store. Plus, I find online stores have more things than actual stores. And sometime's it's cheaper.

    Ohh, I love my Mary Jane Crocs. I have them in black and pearl (I think that's the name of the color. I thought they were going to be white, but they're more of a gray color). They opened a Crocs outlet across the street from my work last week. I'm going to go when we come home to see if they have any Mary Janes or any other cute Crocs!

    I know, it's so close. I'm sitting on my bed with all my clothes trying to pack... :confused3

    Totally random and OT, but I hate it when people lie. Geez, get a life. :confused3

    So, I feel like posting some more random pictures to keep everyone occupied until we leave in 3 DAYS!!!

    Here is a very old picture from when my parents took me to DL when I was about 2 or 3. I think 3. I need to ask my Mom. This wasn't my first DL trip though. This is me and my Dad.

    Notice the castle has fur on it? :laughing:

    Here's my Dad buying me a balloon. I love how the CM's costumes are.

    Those pictures are great, Courtney! I love them! It is about time you dragged out the old stuff too, after Jasmine and I exposed our old DL photos to the world!

    I can see you inherited your dad's height. He looks very tall and you look like you are very tall. What fun pictures. You were too cute as a tiny toddler - even though we can barely see you.

    Now you have me curious. Did you catch someone in a lie that they tried to deny, or did you just happen to notice that they lied and you didn't mention it? I have had an issue like that come up in just the last few days, where I know someone is lying about something (several somethings, actually) and they deny, deny, deny. It is very upsetting when you know someone lied about something, even if they admit it, but worse if they don't admit it.

    Thank you! That's something I really remember as a kid is going to Disneyland. :goodvibes

    Thank you, Sherry!!! I found those last week. We recently moved, so all our picture boxes went into storage since we moved into a smaller place. I had a ton of Disneyland pictures that were on our old fridge, and now that we moved, I don't know where they went. :confused3 I did find these though and just took pictures of them with our Sony since we don't have a scanner anymore.

    Yep, I got my height from my Dad. He's still much taller than me. He's 6'4" and I'm 5'9". But my Mom is only 5'1". So I guess I'm in the middle!!

    I caught someone. Well I guess caught, I don't know if they know. Over something dumb (well Disneyland isn't dumb). It's not so much a big deal, especially because I'm one who doesn't get phased by drama easily and I'm not super close to this person anyways. I guess it's just amusing. Especially when someone goes to great lengths to try to cover their lie when instead they should just stop and end it there.

    Oh crud, I just received this email from the Anaheim Desert Inn and Suites.

    We orginally booked with them before we booked with hotels.com for the Hotel Menage. I called and cancelled our reservation with the Desert Inn and the guy gave me a confirmation number, that was still awhile ago. I think I still have it. I need to look in my wallet in the morning. I'm hoping I just got this email by error. I'll call them in the morning.

    They did the same thing to me!

    When Eric had his surgery we talked to the doctors and they said it was a bad idea for him to be going to DL so close after the major surgery, so we cancelled our reservation at Desert Inn & Suites but they still sent us an email thanking us for choosing them for our trip. So I called them and they said it was cancelled and not to worry. I think that maybe its automated on their server once you book with them regardless if you cancel.

    I love your pictures btw! Find more ! I wanna seee :) Its so interesting to see other halfies when they're younger ;) I think you look more Filipino than me for sure, especially when you were younger!

    Whew! That's what I was thinking that it was just automated. The guy said not to worry and it was canceled. Good thing I kept the confirmation number too, just in case it wasn't canceled.

    I need to find more! I'll ask my Dad if the picture boxes are easy to find in the garage before I go down there and look for myself. Everyone says I look even more Filipino than my Mom. She's just more brown than I am. I'm white. :laughing:

    Glad to know I'm not the only one this happened to! I'm so glad you like reading my TRs! I'll have plenty more for you to enjoy! Wow! 12 days. That's coming up so fast, you're going to have an awesome time! :wizard: :cool1:

    So I am all packed. I finished this afternoon.

    I have some strange obsessive thing when it comes to packing. I hate and have a very strange fear (I'm not one that is real afraid of things either) of being without things. I always always pack too much. I've actually gotten better though. Normally we hit the parks in the morning, stay until the mid afternoon and go back to the hotel, rest, shower if we feel like it (usually Jesus does, too much hassle for me to wash my hair and put on makeup again), change (I do change into warmer clothes) and go back to the parks until closing. So I always pack 2 sets of clothes. So that would mean I'm packing for 8 days instead of 4. :eek: Wow, that sounds crazy in writing.

    I have one whole duffel packed with just clothes and then the blue star Mickey smaller duffel with sweatshirts and a jacket and an extra pair of Crocs. I'll also put my blow dryer, straightener and toiletries in there. Then I have the other Mickey bag with snacks and other things (like a folder with our hotel ressies and my birthday email Disney sent me) and that's it!

    It's not supposed to be real hot when we go, high 60's. So I packed to wear shorts during the day with long sleeves and jeans and a sweatshirt at night. I always get cold in DL anyways, so with long sleeve underneath I can always take it off if I get too hot. ETA: Maybe I should just wear short sleeves and wear a light jacket over. That why it's easier to take off. Plus a small jacket will fit inside my Baggallini no problem.. Hmm... :confused3

    The plan for Tuesday morning is to leave at 9am. The park opens at 10am. We figured (took us almost a year too!) that it's better if we leave after morning rush hour instead of leaving early and trying to beat traffic. We always hit traffic in the exact same spots (LA!), last time we left later in the morning it took us less than an hour to get there. When we hit traffic it takes us up to 2 hours. My Mom is going to drop me off at Jesus' house on her way to work. That way there's no drama of me leaving my car at his house or anything. Even though I'm right by the freeway, if Jesus doesn't have someone there kicking his butt to get ready, I'd be waiting at my house all morning for him to come. :laughing: So, my Mom is dropping me off pretty early, she said we're leaving around 6:30am. I'll take a shower here and get dressed, then I'll do my makeup and hair over at Jesus'.

    The only PS we have made is for Minnie and Friends at 9:10am on Thursday morning. :woohoo:

    Am I missing anything else?
